Took the Sunset Cruise tonight on the Kokomo and it was fantastic! We always take some sort of dolphin cruise when visiting the beach and this was by far the best one we've ever done. The crew was very knowledgable and super friendly. The sunset cruise is a must do while visiting the OBX.

We had such a wonderful sunset tour tonight. We saw so many dolphins and watched a beautiful sunset. I highly recommend this tour and the captain and mate were great.

My family is looking forward to our summer vacation on the Outer Banks...and one of the things we have already scheduled is our evening aboard the KOKOMO to watch the dolphins. We all LOVE the sunset cruise and then an evening out to dinner. What a wonderful and relaxing way to spend the evening. Everyone from my parents (ages 83 and 79) to my nephew (age 10) look forward to this time together! THANKS FOR HELPING TO MAKE GREAT MEMORIES.

My husband and I went on the sunset cruise. The trip included families with young children. It was a terrific experience. Capt. Jay and Andrew were great guides and related to all onboard with stories and info. We saw dolphins in their natural habitat, feeding, wrestling and jumping. It is a great adventure!

This was a really great tour for my family. We took a Saturday evening sunset tour, and got the opportunity to see lots of dolphins. The captain found the perfect location for us to spot the dolphins, and take lots of great pictures and videos. The captain and first mate were both knowledgeable and entertaining and helped make for a truly wonderful experience. I would highly recommend this tour to anyone seeking a unique experience while in the Outer Banks!

We had a very fun sunset cruise today on the Kokomo. We saw so many dolphins, lots of birds and wonderful scenery with a beautiful sunset to end it all. The Captain and his mate were very personable and funny. A great time was had by all. We saw so many more dolphins than I expected and our boat stayed out much longer than the other dolphin boats. This is definitely the best tour to take!

Frequently Asked Questions

1What should I bring with me?
Your camera and a smile! You can also bring a cooler and snacks.
2Do you guarantee that I will see dolphins?
Yes. We do guarantee that you will see dolphins or ride again for free. The dolphins are wild and are free to move about in the sound. We are the closest to the dolphin and we know where they feed in the Roanoke Sound. It is just a matter of finding them and the ride is wonderful itself.
3Can I feed the dolphins?
No. The dolphins are wild animals and it is illegal to feed them because it takes them out of their natural habitat.
4Can I swim with the dolphins?
No. The Marine Mammal Protection Act prohibits any activity that causes the dolphins to alter their normal behavior. Please visit the National Marine Sanctuaries website for more information on responsible stewardship of wild dolphins.
5Are reservations required?
Yes. A reservation holds your spot on the boat. We do allow walk-ons if room is available. We simply need your name and number in party and a phone number so we can reach you in case something changes (like the weather). A credit card is required to hold your reservation.
6Where does the cruise go?
We cruise the Roanoke Sound. We do not venture into the ocean.
